about this? you look what they did and the syria war, in which was they had in 2006, you never heard word one about it before they did it. why are they vocal about this? there's three reasons why they have been so vocal. one, it was designed to motivate the rest of the world, and i think, by the way, if you, you know, we know from our emphasis regarding the idea that the europeans would have adopted the sanctions they did like a boycott on iranian oil if they didn't they the alternative was they would strike voluntarily, and to think that would have happened without the israeli, quote, motivation," is not realistic. the second reason they do it is because they are getting the world ready not to be surprised. if diplomacy fails, and the third reason is to get the public ready. that reflecting their reality, but in answer to the question, we've, you know, you've -- we've not had conversations with others that i'm aware of that would deal with that, but i note for you that david cameron made statements saying, you know, also repeated the words "all options on the table," we want deploam

approach. and then there's the issue of syria. please say some words about what you see as the next steps with regard to iran, how do we see that unfolding in the time ahead, and then what's the way forward with syria? >> yeah. three things. one, you know, the arab spring turned out to be less spring. probably the better term is the arab awakening, and we're going to go through springs and winters and summers and falls, and it's going to vary country to country, and it's going to take a long time. but look, it was inevitable, unavoidable and actually a good thing that the people of the arab world should start taking some responsibility for their future. and there's just no going back. and it is very much in our interest how these awakenings come out and that they result in societies that are democratic, that are producing a better life for their people, and we should do everything we can in a smart way recognizing we're not so popular in the middle east right now to try to help get that outcome. there are a couple big threats to that. one is syria, and i'm more worried about syria in term

with syria, something with china. >> something with something we don't know. >> something with something. the unknown unknowns as donald rumsfeld would say. >> right. >> is there any way to prepare for them? what does history tell us. >> no is the short answer, except that you prepare for leadership and hopefully you learn all the way along. i think president kennedy's great example of that. i think the conventional historical wisdom about learning from the bay of pigs and the pay juf from the missile crisis is true. he was able to understand that the generals weren't always right and to wait and to always put yourself in the other guy's sho shoes, which is a hugely important lesson and all these presidents understood. so in a sense you prepare for crisis, you prepare to deal with competing forces, and also incoming and seemingly contradictory information. even in this era where the president of the united states is watching in real time the operation to take out bin laden, even with that, there is a fog of war, there is a fog of information, and a president is paid to make sure that whe

this period? and related to this, as we all know, there is a war -- a civil war happening in syria. iran is a wrote ally of the assad regime. how is that affecting iran yeas security calculations? -- iran's security calculations? are they going to insert that into the p-5 plus one dialogue? how will you answer the questions? >> of course the middle east has stranged. the syrian war and now this confrontation between israel and hamas that somehow brought us back to the middle east that we used to know, the israelis and the arabs going at it and egypt. but right before that iran saw its for turns decline. its popularity in the arab streets declined because of the arab spring, and then the syrian situation has introduced some very, very important elements, almost sectarian element that declined -- that eroded iranian influence in the region and the projection of the iranian power hit a brick wall with that. so all of this of course closed into the mix of what iran is thinking. and this is one of the reasons this is a good time to start negotiating with iran. as its reach in the middle east

have serious and continuing differences with russia -- on syria, missile defense, nato enlargement, a human-rights, and other issues. so we have to take a smart and balanced approach going forward. we need to continue expanding our engagement with russia, but with very clear rise about where we draw our lines. we also have to engage with a set of the emerging democratic powers like brazil and mexico, india and indonesia, south africa and turkey, that are exercising greater influence in their region and on the world stage. the strategic fundamentals of these relationships, shared democratic values, common economic and security priorities, are pushing our interests and do closer convergence. this is reflected in the broad strategic dialogue we have launched with the emerging powers. the key going forward will be to encourage them to leave behind the outdated politics of the past and take up the responsibilities that come with global influence, including defending our shared democratic values beyond their borders. let me turn to the third element of our agenda, what i call economic st
to believe syria has gone on for 20 months with despair. now an op sfwligs group says the civil war has claimed 42,000 lives, and that is not counting the 30 people who are killed today. one city that's been particularly hard hit is aleppo. as nick peyton walsh shows us, no place is safe. >> reporter: even sanctuaries in aleppo can be deadly. this hospital where the wounded flood itself hit by an air strike wednesday. the building next to it collapsed. the hospital's lobby crammed with patients from children hit by shrapnel to injured rebels caught hard. in the debris at least 15 dead, including a doctor and two nurses. jubilation as one man is found alive, but now there's a question where do you take him to? doctors have struggled for months to keep death at its doors. blood-soaked blankets when we visited in september. few medical supplies, endless hours, constant bombing, the power cut. but they persisted even when rounds hit the hospital's maternity ward. among their patients, an uneasy mix of competent and innocent born out of no other choice. there really was nowhere else to run f

to get into syria as well. >> you write something in your piece i know i hasn't heard about. she famously flipped richard holbrooke the bird in a meeting years ago and is known to have sharp elbows. reading she might -- one of her favorite words is a word i cannot repeat on television. she seems tough. that could be a good thing, jay, especially in politics, but you say in diplomacy not so much, why? >> diplomacy is saying polite things in front of the public. when you go on cameras and on television as she did on the sunday shows after the benghazi attacks, the less you say, the better. it is about saying the really harsh things behind the scenes but then in the front of the cameras, not so much. it is the opposite of politics. politics you say the really harsh things in front of the cameras and then say, okay, i'll compromise here or there and everywhere behind off the scenes. and so in that sense she is pretty political. and but we have had had political secretaries of state before, james bakker comes to mind, like a bull in a china shop but yet incredibly effective. >> jay newton smal
sectarianism now coming out of syria and bahrain. saw a survey showing there's higher numbers of egyptians who say shia shouldn't be considered real muslims than there are in iraq, and iraq just went through a sectarian civil war, and most egyptians have probably never seen a shia in their life. so sectarianism, those kinds of things, are also being spread through, through these media channels. >> yeah. i think on, you know, the unification issue, um, i agree that there's diversity, and you will find, you know, libya, tunisia, everywhere else will be focused on issues. only about a third across the board identify with this state as the first choice of identity. and most still identify themselves either muslim or arab first. really it's muslim arab. so you've got, in essence, you know, when you even ask them should the state serve the interests of its citizens or the interest of arabs or muslims, you have a large chunk saying the interest of arabs and muslims, so there is a sense of connectedness even as they focus on the issue. but politically, we're focused on public opinion, this is a revolu

unrest in syria, in iran, in the region generally, i think this. during this fight the united states needs to signal that we are going to be with israel and going to be a strong ally from the outset and throughout whatever difficulties may arise. martha: anyone who has watched the situation knows there has about in the past been tensions between benjamin netanyahu and president obama. is that perhaps why hillary is the one to go or is it too early for presidential involvement. >> i think it's too early. she is there to set the stage for things likely to come. we saw the president come out and issue a rather trapbg statemenstatement of support for israel. the increase in the amount of rocket fire coming from gaza, you had hillary clinton now set to meet with benjamin netanyahu, i think trying to do two things, basically, the first she wants to avoid a ground war. i think the united states government doesn't want to see this progress or escalate. second, i think she is trying to buy the united states a little wiggle room and flexibility when it comes to the bigger issue of iran and mi
they carry on? in the middle of a war whether it's syria afghanistan whatever it might be, in mexico, how do people just go about their business? >> well, i think people don't have a choice. when conflicts erupt in a places that than been peaceful, there is a period of shock. but people understand, hey, i have to go to my job or i have to get water, firewood whatever it is. it is circumstantial. people are forced into living their lives as they need to. >> cenk: when you go back to mexico, and i don't know if you have a sense of time and perspective there, but it certainly appears that it got much worse. did you see that? and why do you think it got so much worse? why do you think people are thrown in vats of acid, etc.? >> you know, over the last four or five years the violence has increased dramatically. i think a lot of that had to do with the militarization of the country. you know basically have federal police and military forces deployed to cities all over the country, and it heated up the area. now you have another group of armed actors contributing to the violence. certainly the poli
in syria. but you can be sure that the israeli defense forces are watching that northern border very, very closely right now. >> harris: jonathan hunt, thank you very much. in addition to rockets, israel and hamas are also battling each other on-line. the israeli defense force has consistently and constantly updated its official twitter account since this conflict began. one tweet reads, quote, we recommend that hamas operatives whether low level or senior level, show their faces above ground in days ahead. the militant wing of hamas responding with its own tweet. quote, our blessed hands will reach your leaders and soldiers wherever they are. you opened hell gates on yourselves, end quote. and all of this is going on despite twitter's policy against direct specific threats of violence. >>> you've been hearing about it. economic crisis just a few weeks away potentially if lawmakers don't do something about it. president obama meeting with congressional leaders from both political parties to try to get them back from the brink. if they can't reach a deal by new year's day, tax also go up, d
